Cappellano on Snooth

  • Cappellano Nebbiolo Barolo 1980

    Snoothrank:

    Choco necco wafer greets the nose along with dusty, mineral, earthy aromas. There is a lovely herbal base here that recalls fennel but the fruit is definitely roasted and stewy. Bright and juicy on entry with an array of earthy, tarry and licorice scents in the mouth. A lovely porcini note on the palate, yet lots of tannins on the finish, albeit... Read More

  • Cappellano Nebbiolo Barolo 1979

    Snoothrank:

    A bit tight on the nose with sweet fruit, a hint of Tootsie Roll, an edge of arugula and mint, along with oyster shell and tar base notes. Silky and bright on the palate with wonderfully ripe tannins and tarry, spicy flavors. This lacks some fruit but texturally is very attractive with an earthy, mineral note that leads to a long, huge finish fu... Read More

  • Cappellano Nebbiolo Barolo 1978

    Snoothrank:

    Insecticide on the nose along with caraway seeds and a little black pepper in a muddy presentation. Earthy and a bit fudgy on the palate. This is fairly tannic, bright, dusty, chunky and a bit tough, in a very extracted style. Even the finish is tough and extracted with evolved earthy flavors. With air the tannins soften a bit, but this remains ... Read More

  • Cappellano Barolo 1974

    Snoothrank:

    Mushroom and pencil lead on the nose with a fair amount of insect spray; this smells wrong. Soft tannins and bright acids give this a good juicy feel, and the chunky plummy fruit is smooth, and attractive but at the same time simple and short, finishing with bright acidity but a bit chunky and clumsy. Not what I expected. Read More

  • Cappellano Barolo 1970

    Snoothrank:

    A bit of tree bark on the nose before this turns moderately sweet, with earthy overtones and some dried rose petals. Nicely spiced with a sweet beefiness, flecked with hints of limestone, celery seed, smoke and oxidized sweet. Rich, still nicely fruity and well-endowed, though the flavors here are very developed and in the brown end of the spec... Read More

  • Cappellano Reserva Speciale 1967

    Snoothrank:

    A little funky on the nose at first, in fact this smells a bit like mutton. There is decent complexity here with hot stones on the nose, light tar and strawberry fruit thats a bit smoky and recalls burning strawberry jam with a caramel top note. Complete, the first wine with fruit that is complete and still towards the front of the palate. This... Read More

  • Cappellano Nebbiolo Barolo 1964

    Snoothrank:

    Grapefruit astringency greets the nose followed by wet leather, sweet and a bit nutty and green walnut syrup aromas. The nose is a bit high-toned, with a little hint of coal, sweet waxy red fruit, and smoky pomegranate notes. Very transparent in the mouth with soft tannins lending this a fairly silky feel. This shows lovely bright fruit, perhaps... Read More

  • Cappellano Nebbiolo Barolo 1958

    Snoothrank:

    A touch funky on the nose with a bit of body odor, stink wrapped up in an earthy, dried herbal, chalky earth toned nose. The aromas are rich and powerful, supported by a fair amount of VA, but not entirely agreeable. Dry tannins are balanced by a bit of oxidized sweetness up front. In fact, this has powerful drying tannins that are very finely t... Read More

  • Cappellano Barbaresco 1958

    Snoothrank:

    Intensely perfumed with aromas of rose petals, sweet herbs, a little sour cherry, bit of camphor, high-toned, jammy and spicy in a lean red-fruited way, though with air this turns very caraway scented with hints of little forest floor and sweet veal stock. Sweet on entry though a bit vague on the mid-palate, with lovely brown spices, a bright r... Read More

  • Cappellano Nebbiolo Barolo 1947

    Snoothrank:

    A bit dirty on the nose with lots of horseradish and earthy root notes as well as a little rubbery. This is intensely aromatic with strong aromas of diesel smoke and Chinato herbs. Silky with a superb texture, but the earthy fruit is faded. There is an echo of fruit on the palate that extends through the finish. A nice wine that is a treat to dr... Read More
